justify a search of someone's home or vehicle. in this case, florida v. harris. the question before the court is whether the drug dog signaled to its handler outside a pickup truck during a traffic stop established probable cause to justify an immediate, warrantless search of the truck. no drugs were found. the court will give a decision before the end of the network -- before the end of the network in june. >> mr. gar, welcome back. >> thank you, your honor. and play it please the court -- may it please the court. the question in this case is when does a trained drug detection dog establish cause to search the vehicle? >> are you for or against the dog? [laughter] >> for, your honor. an extraordinary set of evidentiary requirements in effect puts the dog on trial in any suppression hearing in which the defendant chooses to challenge the reliability of the dog. i think most fundamentally the problem with the court of appeals and the supreme court's decision is that it misconceives what this court's cases conceive of the probable cause requirement. converting probable cause as a subs
how it works. whereas texas and florida are giving an idea of how you can govern without an income tax. people moved. we kind of know what is going to happen here. indiana, illinois, big border. they just past the right to work and they're giving the school kids a choice of a falter scholarship. illinois raised taxes want to inform the government worker pension system. who is going to build a factory in the 100 miles on the western side of the border? any takers for the people that think jobs and opportunities are going to move into illinois or not? what if we know something isn't going to work? do we impose it nationally when we watch it fail at the state level? not all are heading to warmer climates but states with no income tax or lower taxes and less spending. less government services. people move to the states with fewer government services. really? then why do we pretended that is what people want as opposed to what the unionized bureaucracies in the state government says it wants. we also see the tests on louisiana and in the and i have a half a million people, 100,000 in arizon

of a small troop of men, army soldiers, marching from one place toot in florida, which was like the far side of the moon to most americans at that time. and what that did was set in motion a moment that led too a war against the seminole indians. one of the overlooked moments in our past, which is something else i always tried to do. tell the stories that the textbooks leave out. most americans had never heard of the longest, most costly war in american history, until vietnam, which was the seminole war fought in florida, so that was as gripping and astan issuing to people of that time as 9/11 was to us. pearl harbor was again. so each generation has had one of these moments, and we do forget that we've been through this before. obviously we're going through it right now in a sense. i'm a new yorker. i'm here in new york, and we are living through this extraordinary moment, and i just want to say briefly, thank you, to the people who are expressing such concern and care for new york and this region. we have a long way to go, and a lot to do. in fact on my way into the studio this more than i

wanted to so he decided that the best thing to do would be to ship him to florida, so that is what they did. and there is a photo in the book. they eventually went back, they ended up on the oklahoma reservation after a couple of years in florida. but he had direct input into that. as far as the other reservations, not so much. that was a policy made by the department of the interior and that is why the army wanted to get control of it, because they thought they could do a better job and keep better track of everybody and treat them more fairly. yes, sir? >> can you tell us a little bit about sheridan's personal life? >> yes. he was in his early 40s. he married the daughter of daniel rucker, who is a master general to sheridan's department division in missouri. met her during the great chicago fire. irene and ham lost their home. so they stayed with sheridan and their brother at their home. they were married and ended up having $3 in the sun. they were married and had three daughters and a son. they had a very happy marriage. they all moved to washington where he becam
as i told you yesterday in the presidential race, in florida has yet to be called here is the absentee ballot voting delay to push right on the floor of the election. we don't know where the 29 electoral votes will go but have made every outcome of the presidential election. back to the topic here. what was your message to washington? a lot of newspaper articles this morning about the fiscal the cliff and that is what faces -- >> we will leave this portion of this morning's washington journal now to go live to the american enterprise institute for panel discussions on the election with fox news channel commentator michael barone, inside out columnist norman borkenstein and others. it is just beginning. this is live coverage from c-span2. >> to start the aei series in 1982. he is with us here today been lautenberg and the late richard scamen were the people to look at the intersection of democracy and public often opinion data in the 1970 book "the real majority." they told us how important changing demographics would be to future e elections come indigenous election de pass braking ins
's not functionally different than using an airplane to look into the house, like in florida v. reilly. i think this case is a lot like that. in florida v. reilly, the officers used a helicopter to fly over the house, and they saw exposed marijuana. here you're using the drug detection law to smell to door of marijuana that is being pumped out of the house into the street, and the people in the house know that, and we know they know that because mothballs were present. they're a masking agent. people don't have a legitimate expectation of privacy. this court has held knowingly exposed to the public, that's what the court said in florida v. reilly. and i think here one way to resolve it is to say people who live in grow houses with a distinct odor of marijuana who know that is being pumped out in the street because of the air-conditioning they need to run the grow houses, there's no invasion in their expectation of privacy when either a man or a dog when lawfully present on the property uses their god-given senses to detect that. so if i could reserve -- >> thank you, counsel. >> thank you. >> m

marching from one place to another in florida, which was really the first site of the men to most americans at that time. what that did was set in motion a moment that led to a war against the seminole indians, one of the overlooked moments in our past, which is something also try to do, tell the stories that the textbooks to leave out. most americans have never heard of the longest most costly war in american history up until vietnam, which was the seminole war fought in florida. so that moment was as gripping and astonishing in a way to people about time as 9/11 was to bus. pearl harbor certainly was again. to each generation has had one of these moment that we do forget that we've been through this before. obviously, we are going through right now in a sense. i'm a new yorker. i ensure new york and we are living through this extraordinary moment. i just want to say briefly thank you to the people who are expressing such concern and care for new york and this region. we have a long way to go and a lot to do. on my way into the studio this morning, i was remembered thomas jefferson's words
. >> while they are still counts voting in florida -- [inaudible] >> [inaudible] >> it's not on? oh, there's a greener light. i apologize. [laughter] i saw the green light, too subtle for me, but i hope we're on now. here's what we know. we certainly know the president was re-elected, democrats picked up seats in the senate, which is contrary to what anybody in washington, i think, thought, even as late as labor day. we know the house is going to stay roughly the same. absent breaking news, i bring you no precinct returns from florida. i'd like to spend more time on why this is happened, and what that means for us going forward. first, i share the admiration all around for president obama's campaign team. they were tech nickically close to perfect in the first responsibility of a campaign team, that is to identify and turn out voters. they planned it. they executed it. every step of the way, they knew what votes they needed, got out and got them. they began weeks before election day banking favorable votes in states where they had already had people on the ground preplabbed to produce. aga
of this relatively narrow popular vote margin. assuming that he carries florida where he is the current ahead in the miami-dade county. people are are this year counting votes without the assistance of many republican and democratic lawyers. with florida his electoral vote victory is 332-206. bush was 51-48 margin in 2004 india 286 votes and obama was slightly less it appears against 332. i think there is a certain structure of demographic advantage for democrats in the electoral college in this era. democratic voters tend to be clustered into large metropolitan areas and in particular neighborhoods and they give them a craft an initial advantage in the electoral college. president obama got 57% or more of the popular vote in 11 states and the district of columbia and they have 163 electoral votes. romney won 13 states by such margins but they only have 104 electoral votes of basically the democrats have a bigger hunting ground and and a larger base in the electoral college and the mere hunting ground to go find those votes and barack obama into campaigns has been successful with 365 and appa
. >> you are defending a florida supreme court opinion which says must. you cannot just say, you know, i am not asserting any particular thing is necessary, adjusted tell the. you have an opinion here in which the florida supreme court says must. it must include, you know, the feel of things. you disavow that or you want us to ignore it? >> that is not the holding on which i am relying here. the holding and which i am relying is that training and certification alone, the mere fact of training and certification alone is not sufficient to establish the dodger liability. and hence the language about must, rubber, the florida supreme court did not just say that failure to produce one of these elements necessitated reversal. then when engaged in the totality of the circumstance test. several lower courts applying that case, applying harris have reached the same conclusion. in two of those cases -- >> this is absent in the fatality of the circumstances. and to none the less poll that there was probable cause, must does not mean must. >> must means must if the state has the record, if the records
? the presiding officer: the senator from florida. mr. nelson: mr. president, before the senator from new jersey leaves the floor, i just want to say that this senator's heart goes out to you and your people. we take hurricanes more as a part of our lifestyle from florida, but when you combine a hurricane in the northeast at this time of year, during a full moon at high tide in one of the most densely populated coastal areas of the united states, then you definitely have a problem. and this senator wants to help you with what's going to be necessary with additional funding of fema and so forth. i want the senator to think about an idea that we implemented in florida to create in effect a reassurance fund against this kind of catastrophe. we call it the florida hurricane catastrophe fund. this was done when i was the elected insurance commissioner prior to me, and then i had to implement it in the aftermath of the monster hurricane in the early 1990's, hurricane andrew. as i have talked to our colleagues in the senate about a national catastrophic fund, people in other parts of the country don't
? >> they are still counting votes in florida and -- [inaudible] bears and even greener light. i apologize. i saw that little green light and you know, it was too subtle for me. here is what we know. we certainly know that the president was reelected and we know democrats have picked up seats in the house and the senate which is contrary to what anybody in washington i think god even as -- we know they house will stay roughly the same so with his breaking news i bring you know that returns from florida and i like to spend more time on why he did this happen and what does that mean for us going forward? first, i share the admiration all around for president obama's campaign team. they were technically close to perfect in the first responsibility of the campaign team and that is to identify and turn out voters. they planned it, they executed it and every step of the way they knew what votes they needed and they went out and got them. they began weeks before election day thanking favorable votes in states where they have our people on the ground preplanned so again technically a superb operation and
for ohio and florida so the lgbt support for obama is bigger in both ohio and florida bandit is winning margin so you can credibly argue that vote mattered a lot and if you think about an election where obama loses ohio and florida, you start to think about a very different election. and then i looked at polls and said what if romney and obama had more -- the lgbt vote was 76 obama, 20 to two romney and quite frankly it has been about that -- it's been roughly 3-1. obama, that's the highest it's been quite frankly it's been high all through. but what if they split more or less evenly over romney got a little bit more? if romney had 151% of the lgbt vote he would have won ohio, florida and virginia. he would have been within four electoral votes of the presidency. so, in florida all he had to do was win a little over a third of the lgbt vote to win those states. so, while i don't think that -- in the way that we are not talking about immigration and things that republicans have to rethink their strategy on, i don't think it's quite that level of impact but a little bit of movement in the
and books as well. the big bookstore down here in south florida. well, the c-span buses also year, and we are handing out but banks with our partners comcast here in the miami area. if you happen to be in the area, come on down. we are at miami-dade college the north side of downtown miami for the miami book fair. in just a minute the panel in chapman all here at miami-dade college will begin -- will be beginning. dave barry in the onion editors, humor columnist solve them. there will be introduced by brad meltzer who will be moderating the panel. the novelist will be joining us later. ms. kaplan will also be speaking, the founder of the miami book fair, introducing and opening the weekend coverage. in just a minute we'll take you now to chapman all. it's rather full. we will be beginning or coverage varies and. we are live on book tv. [inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations] >> good morning. i had
out, florida, virginia, which were going to be my next two states he would need to win and they are still undecided at this point. with obama slightly ahead in both of them. basically it looks like it stopped. but he would've needed to do florida and virginia and then would need to get into colorado, iowa, new hampshire and still even winning all of that was going to be pretty short to 70. so it was pretty clear, you know, going into election day that away, a whole lot had to have been right for romney to get over the 270 and it just didn't happen. it just seemed to peter out either after north carolina and a sequencer may be either florida or virginia once all the votes had counted or theoretically both probably not. that's theretofore applies. and there was one point back around just looking at the sequencing of it. romney was clearly dead in the water, just not moving. he was that far behind before the first debate. it looks like a really hard three to five points. and you got a sense and i had a chance to look at what wal-mart moms focus groups and focus groups that
is probably tracking her down. even though she might be more personable candidate in the race. >> florida, congressman alan west, a tea party republican trying to keep his seat for a second term. >> alan west running against patrick murphy, not former congressman patrick murphy of california -- pennsylvania but this is one of the most expensive and nastiest races in the country. i think that the district by the numbers is very competitive but alan west is tenacious. right now he is running probably three times the amount of television and that a number candidate would run at this stage. even though he is polarizing, he's also strategic. former military officer and patrick murphy, he has a tough task i think in coming across spent an interesting race in utah, the fourth congressional district. a republican, african-american, the race is getting a lot of attention. >> jim matheson, democrats regarding is one of the survivors, but he survived a 20 republican wave in a republican district. but i think that republicans didn't really target confidence and a lot of money trying to feed him in 20
arabs the oil and jews the electoral college. [laughter] they were cluttered in swing states in florida >> -- >> norm, you're going to respond to the diamond in the rough. >> right, so it protects small minorities because it was protects them, and finally, the idea that who is going to be the leader of this country will be a tie and that so many tens of millions of people are disenfranchised because they live in a blue state or a red state. my thought was, and i think it's just controversial that if you awarded by federal statute or institution, what the order would be, one electoral vote to the winner of the popular vote, that would eliminate a tie, and it would make everybody feel that that -- if they wanted to feel that way, that makes everyone feel they were part of the process, even if they live in a 70/30 swing state, red or blue, well, i went in and vote. >> yeah. have you thought about the issues? >> yeah. you know, a couple points ben made. first is it's a rare election that is not decided in some fashion at the margins. yet, it does result in an electoral college bonus. ronald
becomes the president at least in part because of the ballot design in florida and the weather in the florida panhandle so i can't think of anything more random than the weather in florida so random facts obviously have an impact. if you run history a million times those random events make different people when, different likelihoods of winning. if you could run that election a million times you get george w. bush 400,000 times and al gore 400,000 times in and john mccain 400,000 times. people who are at the center of the distribution, people who are really likely to win, people who live in thoroughly tilted by the process, from another way i describe it is filtered, they have a lot in common with each other. but if you can get power, by bypassing the process and if something happens of the leader filtration process isn't able to thoroughly evaluate you and in the evaluation process recognize you are not what it's looking for forward ever reason, and stops you from getting powered, then those people i call them unfiltered can be on the extreme of the distribution of people who
't. to a much more detailed system of school report cards. this is something that's been done in florida and other states and it's served to catalyze and generate school performance. the other thing as i said much more on the croats and achievement with schools are contrary thing so we can empower to make informed decisions about their child education. >> but as you yourself have noted some of some of the incentives have encouraged state leaders to inflate the performance of schools. when you focus on the level the students are achieving the way you because students in particular you focus on the share of students that are proficient and use that as you're only indicator of success then there are two ways to improve the rates one is through achievement and the worst to lower the definition of proficiency and we have seen too much of the latter so shifting to a focus on growth is one way to deal with some of those incentives. second, romney emphasized the importance of not prescribing a single definition of provisions standards across the state making sure the states with the lowest perfo
there's including american airlines, target and florida blew them are very grateful to them as well. we have a very special new program for you. i hope you will stay with for the tire afternoon, but of course they are our many author sessions throughout this fair that you should partake in, as time and enjoy. your cell phones if you'd please turn those off as a standard as you all know so we have no interruption in the author will be autographing books as always in the green area to the right of the elevator. to introduce our author today, i'm sure you will all be delighted to have the individual who is a founder of miami book fair in your national. let me see if you can guess who this individual is as they move along. one of the founders of miami book fair international, the owner of books and books. i think i gave it away right there. and certainly someone in this community who has propelled the move went of book selling them publishing and all that encompasses literary work. please look on mr. mitchell castle to the podium. [applause] >> thank you, mary lou. thank you all for making
to stop that and so he decided the best thing to do is to ship them to florida well, they eventually ended up on the oklahoma reservation after a couple of years in florida but he had a direct input into that as far as the other reservations, not so much. that is a policy made by the indian bureau, part of the interior and that's where the army wanted to get control because they thought they could do a better job and keep track of everybody and keep them more fairly. yes, sir. >> can you tell us about his personal life? >> yes. he married, he was in his early 40's and he married the daughter of daniel walker who was a court master general who shared in the department of misery in chicago, met her during the great chicago fire. she was just a teenager, and irene they lost their homes so they came over and stayed with sheridan and his brother in their home, which wasn't damaged by the fire. so they were married and ended up having three daughters and a son and she was i think in her early 20s when they married in 1875 and she was 42 or something like that. they really had been married and th
discussed in the media, you have to look at the next agenda and you have to look at ohio and florida. if romney, if lightning were to strike and romney were to carry all three of the states than he is very much in the game to win the election. is on the other hand, if obama were to carry at least two of those three states then i believe romney cannot win the election. if romney carries two and obama carries one of those three states and we will be up late at night watching the electoral college to see how things turn out. i'm not sure that this election has to drag on until the wee hours. i think we may have a good indication by the midnight at least as to where we stand, depending on what happens in those three states. >> you have absentee voting and they don't report that early in those places. >> i don't know how it is because the elections are not run by the government. in texas the absentee voting is reported at 7:00 p.m.. those are the first results. >> erlang foti -- [inaudible] they voted over a year ago. [laughter] >> i am talking about the mailed ballot absentees and the ab
bills took florida. 70% of the bills have been cosponsored on a bipartisan nature. that is the way that we are going to move this thing forward to lead to take control of the senate and reach out in a bipartisan way. heitkamp: he said that he would vote the way he wanted about all a vote on all of these issues -- issues of taxation. last year, congressman berg, when they were trying to solve the problem with the fiscal cliff, to congresspeople, one democrat and one republican, started working on a bipartisan solution to the fiscal cliff. grover norquist pick up the phone and said, no compromise. no compromise. if you compromise, we will come after you and get you in the primary and we will take you out of your seat. it scared people from actually getting it done. these are the partnerships that congressman berg has established. it does not bode well to send someone who establishes those partnerships when you are talking about compromise. when you look at my record of working across party lines in the aisle, i think you will see some remarkable things. partnering up with the constit
was very interesting. the same scenario for the popular vote happen for ohio and florida. the support for obama is bigger in ohio and florida and his winning margin. so you can argue that that vote mattered a lot. if you think about an election where obama loses ohio and florida, you start to think about a very different election. so then i looked at one of mitt romney and obama -- the lgbt vote was 76 obama and 22 per mitt romney. quite frankly, it has been about that -- roughly three to one. quite frankly, it has been high all the way through. but what if they split it evenly or romney just got a little bit more? if mitt romney had 151% of the vote, he would've won ohio, florida, and virginia. he would have been within four electoral votes of the presidency. in ohio and florida, all you have to do is win a little over one third of the lgbt vote win those states. while i don't think that that suggests that in the way we are now talking about immigration and things that republicans have to rethink their strategy about, i don't think it is quite that level of impact. but a little bit o
know returns from florida. a day to spend a little more time on why this is hot and and that is made for us going forward. first, i share the admiration all ran for president the bonus campaign team. they're technically close to perfect in the first responsibility of a campaign team is to identify and turn out voters. they planned it, executed at them every step of the way they knew what those they needed and they went out and began weeks before election day banking favorable votes in states where they had already had people on the ground crew plan to produce. so technically superb operation when it was set to standard for future campaigns and how you identify your voters, encourage them to turn out and perhaps some people think by the fourth or fifth visitor phone call, urging on harassment to turn them out, but it did work. the point i want to make dionne not however because the technical aspect look at a lot of attention. i like to point how much of this is actually policy-based. the fact is elections have ultimately about policies, not just campaign techniques. the first policy o

[applause] good morning, everybody. it is with great pride i'm going to introduce governor bush this morning. we met a over twenty five years ago, i don't think he has it on the rÉsume still, i was in tallahassee and i helped recruit move jeb to tallahassee in 1986 and i don't think he has forgiven me for that. but he was a secretary of commerce, as you may remember for a couple of years, and after i negotiated salary then governor elect renegotiated his salary not upward but downward, as it turns out that's why he doesn't like me. we blame friends as he served in the administration and in 1993, twenty years ago after coming off of the statewide campaign, jeb and i were playing golf in miami and we were went back to his house and i said, i think that running
of the ballot design in florida and the weather in the florida panhandle. there's nothing more random than the weather in florida. if you run history a million times, random events make different people win -- different likely hoods of winning. running that election a million times, you get george w. bush 400,000 times and john mccain 100,000 times. a lot of people. people who are at the center of the distribution, likely to win, people who have been thoroughly evaluated, filtered by the process. another way i describe it is filtered leaders. they are similar. they have a lot in common p each -- a lot in common with each other. if you get power by bypassing the process, something happens so the process is not able to thoroughly evaluate you, and in the process recognize that you are not what it is looking for for whatever reason and stop you from gaining power, then those people, i call them unfitterred, can be on the extreme of that distribution of people who might possibly gain power. >> host: so these people are not stopped, even though the deck is stacked against them? >> guest: that's
think they're the only new yorkers who go to florida to visit their grandchildren. yeah. there are a lot of facts and figures and fun characters and colorful stories in this book, but i knew it would be controversial. ises is revisionist history of the obama stimulus, and just about everybody hates the obama stimulus, and sometimes it feels like obama hates it, too, and won't say the word stimulus anymore. it's hard to blame him. a year after the task a percentage of americans who believe the stimulus created jobs was lower than the percentage of americans who believed elvis was alive. at one point, i told a story how obama told his cabinet that this stimulus was the only thing less popular than he was in any case, when you put the words change and obama this close together you're going to get yelled at. and the new new deal, right wingers don't accept the old knew del and left wingers don't think this spineless sellout of a president is fit to share a book jacket with the new deal. so i had a feel something readers wouldn't get past the first four words, and i was right. a few weeks ago
, the same scenario for the popular vote in the national vote happens for ohio and florida so the lgbt support for obama is bigger in ohio and florida band is winning margins. so you can credibly argue that vote mattered a lot and if you think about an election where obama loses ohio and florida you start to think about a very different election. then i looked at also, what if romney and obama had more or less the -- of the lgbt vote was 7-6 obama and 7-2 romney and quite frankly it has been about that. it has been roughly 3-1. that is the highest it's been but quite frankly it's been high all through. but what if they split it or romney just got a little bit more? if romney had 151% of the lgbt vote he would have won ohio, florida and virginia. he would have been within four electoral votes of the presidency. so in ohio and florida, albeit to do was win a little over one third of the lgbt vote to win this big. so while i don't think that suggests that suddenly in the way that we are not talking about like immigration and things that republicans have to rethink their strategy, i don't

. turnout issue was technical issue and can explain results in ohio, florida and perhaps virginia. it was a close election. but reality is, a party that gets less than 8% of the african-american vote and less than 30% of the hispanic vote and less than 40% of the vote of those people who are coming up through the system, you know is a party that needs to adjust and i have talked about some of that today. some of it is policy. a lot of it is tone. a lot is more inclusive message figuring out what i think is our strength, our positions on the economy and growth and opportunity and translating that in a way that young people in this case, understand and appreciate. you're getting out of school. you're looking at a 50% unemployment rate in terms of matching your degree to the job you want. you would think that would be a big issue. you would think debt and deficit is big issue. it is $55,000 for every young person getting out of college and all of us and those issues are ones that we were not able to communicate in a way that was effective clearly to win the majority of that vote. i t
. in florida, percentage of hispanic voters went up to 70% from 14% 2008, and the composition of the hispanic vote changed and has grown very different than what it was just a few years ago with many more puerto ricans making up the share of this hispanic vote in florida. what that meant nationally was that despite all predictions, democrats were able to keep their edge in the overall electorate. a shock to many people that overall partisan composition of the electorate looked so similar to 2008 with democrats holding a six-point edge. the other big demographics story of tuesday's election of course was women. i mean, we had, our first goal after the first debate when romney did so well and obama did so poorly showed the gender gap almost closing entirely. i mean, it had to be a shock for a lot of democrats to look at that poll. there were other polls that showed the same thing. romney really made gains among women after that first debate, in party was seen as a little bit more moderate. the issues that came up i in the debate were not necessarily, very few social issues if you recall coming
and hercules. components that are all built in florida. he even voted against body armor for troops our troops on the frontline of the war on terror. john kerry's record on national security is troubling. >> it is the same exact ad. the ads are more targeted these days. this is the florida version of that advertisement. all of the focus these days on swing states and targeting the swing states. it is the same identical message. this is something i'm not very proud of the, but what i found out recently was we did an event in 2008. mark mckinnon was one of the guest speakers and he created ads for the bush campaign in 2004. he said that he was actually a fan of this website and he knew about this website and he would look at it to try to get ideas and go back to a past campaign. so i will give you an example of an advertisement. and i'm not saying this proudly. but it was interesting to me to learn this. when we think about the reagan outcome we can do this norman rockwell series of positive ads that make people feel good about the way america was coming back. this ad was actually very effective
their policies, mitigate risk at their institutions and make their campuses safer. from california to florida state have introduced the child abuse reporting, not only moral duty but the law. this is tremendous progress, policies tighten, governance and institutions made safer. and work continues. that brings us to today on the brink of a 1-year anniversary, civil lawsuits, perjury trials and we can expect more fallout to come. over the last year we have learned much about ourselves. many cultures, values and visions. we are working through some difficult issues but the question remains where do we go from here? to penn state's core mission, teaching research and service. our bottom line is delivering outstanding education to students. students are the top priority. our students are our top priority. this year our journalism students capture the national championship and the william randolph hearst foundation's journalism award program. top honors in the national eco car competition, the others racing to get their vehicle to the moon in the google and x prize competition. meteorology students
. johnson visited the kennedy compound at hyannisport. we visited the kennedys in florida. i do think after the assassination, mrs. johnson made it a priority to ensure that the kennedy children had a chance to finish their schooling in the white house, to leave on their schedule from the white house. and to certainly finish mrs. kennedy's effort to furnish and equip the white house with art and antiques as she had done such a magnificent job of doing. this was a great recording for jacqueline kennedy. mrs. johnson think we carry that out. but they were too very different types of women, and this is johnson was much more actively involved in her husband's political career and jacqueline kennedy was. from the very beginning, really. >> this is also a wonderful story. someone was commiserating with the story, they were commiserating with ladybird after the assassination, saying, oh, you poor thing, and follow jackie kennedy as first lady. ladybird was just aghast at this. she said, oh, how can you possibly pity me? please, pity her, she doesn't have her husband. i still have mine. >> there is
an amendment to the florida house of representatives and we will overturn this. and they said that we will send an e-mail out and you can try, but you will fail. i worked with people on both sides of the aisle. anyone who had supported broadband in the past, when it came time for the vote, we had 90 republicans and 91 democrats and we made a bipartisan effort. i have worked with senator gillibrand in nanotechnology, that resulted in great competitive values and i have worked with peter welch to ensure we had funding that was fema and money for farmers and roads and bridges and that was a bipartisan effort. with peter welch. i can tell you that i absolutely believe, that even though you hear all the negative news today, folks can come together -- we have come together and we did it in transportation and we did with fair trade agreements and we did for other loss. i will continue to do that because that is my responsibility. >> moderator: julian schriebman, do you have a rebuttal? schriebman: absolutely. we need to make a commitment for a public and private partnership. the congressman brags that
